Dyer has a very approachable, common man sense about him yet the topics covered are pretty deep and thought provoking
Dyer's stories of his interaction with his kids, kids are crazy insightful and without a filter they regularly cut to the chase without all the BS posturing, political correctness, etc.
I definately get more out of audio or video of Dyer than written book, I guess there is just more passion and understanding when you hear it from the source versus reading it.
Perspective = the ability to know and understand that you are not your feelings, in fact you the observer thereof, that knowing gives you the space to act instead of react to situations, emotions, fights, etc....
I could not find the audio version of the book, so I purchased his lecture on the book. It was good, but still not the book.
Yes/no ... My opinion is that this is a surface level introduction to the Native American perspective. However, I greatly appreciated that it was read by the author.
Author is very authentic and made connection between the past and present. I enjoyed his stories of his childhood and experiences with his grandparents and lessons learned.
Yes, but I wanted more depth.
I did not read it in print, but I am ordering copies for our family library and plan to read it to our boys for story time.
The Prophet, The Go-Giver, Daring Greatly, Walden, Living the Wisdom of the Tao, Art of War, The Greatest Salesman in the World, ... This is one of those books that through a simple story tells all of life's truths, yet the LESSONS can be learned and heard on the surface or you can spend a lifetime trying to fully understand, comprehend and apply.
It was entertaining to hear a famous voice, but I was not a huge fan of how he changed from one character to the next. That said, it was not a distraction either. "A" overall.
YES, YES and I did. I had about an hour of yard work to do, but I spent 4 hours mindlessly doing stuff while totally enraptured by this story. I caught myself smiling and laughing, then later crying as particular lessons went straight to my soul.
READ OR LISTEN to this book. Listen once for the story, listen twice for the lessons and write them down, then listen again and find ways to incorporate into your life ... Now I plan to read to my two young boys simply as a story, but a story with incredible value for their lives! READ THIS BOOK!
I really appreciate authors who read their own work for audible and Wayne is one of the best. He puts so much into the writing, then into the reading too. His presentation speaks right to my soul. Thanks Wayne for sharing so much with us. YES, I will listen again after I left this listening digest for at least a few weeks ... it's really good stuff.
I am an avid listener of all kinds of books, but ones that I might compare in this genere are The Prophet, The Alchemist, Daring Greatly, Go-Giver, and Gifts of Imperfection and of course any of Wayne's other 40+ bestsellers!
YES, I have listened to 100+ hours and watched just about every TV special. I Can See Clearly Now is one of his best works.
YES and I nearly did. I bought it the day my subscription credits were available and went through the whole thing in just a couple days, actually getting up earlier each day to dedicate more time (and then arriving late at the office, stalling in my car to hear more before facing the day).
This is 59 chapters of Wayne's lives, quantum moments where something changed, something coincided to shape his future. He uses these as life lessons in hindsight, challenging us to do the same because so many of his "moments" were crazy obstacles at the time but now are seen as lessons learned!
Maybe, but hesistant to do so
Presentation felt patronizing, too basic, too introductory to really make any difference.
Gary is a good writer AND good narrator! I think this should be mandatory for anyone getting married and everyone who is married. We have a good marriage, but when Gary went through the most common issues in marriage, I identified with 90% thereof ... now I have a "to work on list"!
Eye opening, lots of detail and perspective from both sides (survivor and spouse thereof).
None that I have found yet.
Very motivating to hear the stories of those that made it through!
As spouses we need to understand that we all bring baggage, but for survivors that baggage is something entirely different.
Too many Bible verse quotes for me, but still a good book.
Better communication, seeing both sides, a few good simple steps to get there.
I thought Desperate Marriages and Five Love Languages were MUCH better!
